Witmor Candy cards are one of the many sets that utilized the design/checklist from the popular W575-1 strip card set and/or E121 American Caramel set. The cards are feature a black and white player image along with his name, position, and team at the bottom.

Backs of the cards is what distinguishes these from other W575-1 and E121 card issues.

Witmor Candy backs are a little unique in that they have two separate designs. One is a horizontal layout while the other is vertical. Both backs mentioned a redemption program, stating that a collector could obtain either a baseball, bat, or glove if they sent in a complete set of the cards to the company. Their San Francisco address of 705-729 Sansome Street was also printed.

The Witmor Candy cards also differ in that they specifically state, which W575-1/E121 set to which they belong. They identify that there are 80 cards in the set, which means that they used the E121 Set of 80 checklist.
